Two more states made it official on Tuesday, though President Trump still isn't conceding his fight:

  • Pennsylvania: Joe Biden was certified as the winner of this state, culminating three weeks of vote counting and a string of failed legal challenges by Trump, per the AP. Gov. Tom Wolf sent a "certificate of ascertainment" to the national archivist in Washington with the slate of electors who support Biden. Pennsylvania's 20 electors will meet in the state Capitol on Dec. 14. Under the count certified by Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar, Biden defeated Trump by 80,555 votes, reports the Philadelphia Inquirer, with a tally of 3,458,229 to 3,377,674.

  • Nevada: The Nevada Supreme Court made Biden’s win in the state official, approving the final canvass of the Nov. 3 election, per the AP. The unanimous action by the seven nonpartisan justices sends to Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak results that will deliver six electoral votes from the battleground state to Biden. The court action drew extra scrutiny amid legal efforts by the state GOP and Trump campaign to prevent sending vote-by-mail ballots to all 1.82 million active registered voters and then to stop the counting of the 1.4 million votes that were cast. Nevada’s six Democratic presidential electors are scheduled to meet Dec. 14 in the state capital of Carson City. Biden won by Nevada 33,596 votes, according to results approved by elected officials in Nevada’s 17 counties.
